HD PHYSICAL THERAPY Recognizes June as National Migraine & Headache Awareness Month

WAKEFIELD, Mass. - June 18, 2018 - PRLog -- June is National Migraine & Headache Awareness Month. Over 37 million people in the U.S. are diagnosed with migraines. Although 47% of the adult population experience headaches annually, these disorders are still poorly recognized and inadequately treated. Headache can also be an invisible disease, due to its ability to cause people who suffer from it to feel isolated and alone.Educating others, and ourselves, as well as building awareness about migraines and are the best methods we have of making migraines visible.

For those experiencing chronic migraine, treatment involves both lifestyle changes and medical approaches. They can include medications, antidepressants and complimentary and alternative diets and therapies.

So where does physical therapy fit into the management of migraine headaches? The answer depends on the individual headache sufferer, as there is a wide range of clinical presentations in patients with migraine headaches. Physical therapy primarily involves work on the muscles and joints in the peripheral system. This means how an individual migraine sufferer responds to physical therapy depends partly on the extent to which the muscles and joints are involved in their headaches. The goals of physical therapy treatment are generally to normalize the musculoskeletal system as much as possible in order to reduce stress and tension on the soft tissues and joints. At HD Physical Therapy, we work individually with our migraine patients on the best ways to utilize modalities such as ice and relaxation, stretches and exercise, IASTM and manual and massage techniques.
